I miss my old Skil stick.
My own update:

I still own several of these and use them everyday. I still love them. I haven't had one break in a while so apparently the repair the shop does is well done. I still recommend this tool. PS - Small enough and light enough to keep in your tool bag.

Well here's an update to my last update, Iv'e been using the DeWalt now for a couple weeks now and I really am liking it. The gyro feature is a little odd to begin with, but a little use and it's like an extension of your hand. The battery in it really does last a good long while also. If you like a stick, I recommend this.

I have one and don't use it that often due to the size.

I have one of those. I broke it in driving 3" screws through 2 X 4's
Still works great.....14 years later.
The only improvement I would make is a light.

I used to own a rechargeable Skil. I think left it with an ex. It was slow as molasses.

That’s similar to the one that I had, mine had a removable battery pack though.

I got mine in 2001 and it's still going strong.

I used this for several years before I tried the new sub-compact line (blacked out) and stopped using it. It has two speeds and an adjustable clutch. It can be used straight dildo_style or pistol grip. The controls are intuitive and it's Makita quality.

Can't post links or photos so.... Makita DF012DSE 7.2V Lithium-Ion Cordless 1/4" Hex Driver-Drill Kit with Auto-Stop Clutch
